Playing for Time

3 Comments

A wonderful movie that I have only been able to see once in my lifetime. Just found it on youtube. It’s about 2 and a half hours long, but well worth the time.

Wikipedia: For Time was based on Fénelon’s experience as a female prisoner in the Auschwitz concentration camp, where she and a group of classical musicians were spared in return for performing music for their captors.

Fénelon, a Jewish singer-pianist, is sent with other prisoners to the Auschwitz concentration camp in a crowded train during World War II. After having their belongings and clothes taken and their heads shaved, the prisoners are processed and enter the camp. Fénelon is recognized as being a famous musician and she finds that she will be able to avoid hard manual labor and survive longer by becoming a member of the prison’s female orchestra, Women’s Orchestra of Auschwitz.

In the process, she strikes up a close relationship with Alma Rosé, the musical group’s leader, as well as the other members of the band. Realizing that the musicians get better treatment than other prisoners, Fania convinces the guards and members of the orchestra that another prisoner she had befriended, Marianne, is actually a talented singer. Although Marianne performs poorly at her audition, she is allowed to join the orchestra. Playing for the Nazis, however, robs the women of much of their dignity and most of them often questioned whether remaining alive was worth the abuse they constantly suffer.

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history have been about 200 years. During these 200 years, these nations have progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith.
From spiritual faith to great courage
from great courage to liberty
From liberty to abundance
From abundance to complacency
From complacency to apathy
From apathy to government dependency
From government dependency back into bondage

The End of America….The Cloward-Piven Strategy.

She Survived Hitler and wants to tell America

Leave a comment

shesurvivedhitlerRead this woman’s eyewitness account of the loss of freedom in her native Austria:

——————————————-

December 22, 2012 – “What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences.

“I am a witness to history.

“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

Not so.

Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and, like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been re- quired to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”

And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

“In 1939, the war started, and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and, if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.

“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.

“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers.

“You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..

“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.

“Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands.

“Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the livestock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

“So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

“I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law-abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eyewitness account.

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world. “Don’t let freedom slip away.

“After America, there is no place to go.”

Michael Savage – Sandy Hook Shooting Big Conspiracy to Take Away Rights?

America, Watch What Happens When Guns Are Banned

1 Comment

America, the obama regime and his communist party are coming after our guns. They are using witchcraft — manipulation of emotions of the ignorant and ill informed to cause panic and fear. They love to use events such as the mass murder of children, I dare say the love the events in and of themselves — anything, that will help empower them, to gain greater pwoer power the people. What are a few sacrificed children in their eyes as long as they can benefit from it?

Want to talk about the killing of innocents? Here’s a thought for you. Chicago, a gun free zone has had more murders than I can count right now. Over 400 as of this year. Why has the regime not gone in there and and gotten the thugs and criminals? Many times black children are the innocent victims. Little bystanders who can not even play out in their front yard. Why now is it so important to get rid of guns? Is it because Sandy Hook was white children? Is it because black children do not matter to this regime? Unlike them, I think all children are important. LET decent Americans arm themselves. Black fathers and mothers, white fathers and mothers, white black teachers, let them all arm themselves. It is obvious the law cares nothing about the children when they can’t or will not protect it’s citizens in high crime areas. Anyone who thinks by taking the guns of everyday law-abiding decent American citizens is going to lead to safety, is a fool. And in such case, they get what they deserve in the long run.

Who would you rather have live next door to you? A decent citizen who is armed, or thugs and criminals who are armed? If you think the thugs will have no guns, how stupid you are!

“The innocent can’t fight back.”

“I think the Americans have to be very very careful because their rights will be quickly eroded as ours have and we don’t have a chance in hell of getting those rights back.”

Seriously, does more need to be said on the matter?

Once again, if you want to debate this, go somewhere else. I’m just not interestd in trying to have an intelligent conversation with liberal morons. It is next to impossible.

Is Sandy Hook Shooting a Staged Event?

Communism ALWAYS begins with false information, lying media and the disarming of civilians.

Note: Liberal communist comments are not welcomed on this issue. Yeah, yeah, we all know you want the American people to disarm themselves. Take your opinions elsewhere. This is not the place.

The following is almost unbelievable, but the proof is right in front of us. That is if we dare to take our brain off the back burner, refuse to be spoon fed from liberal communist media, and think for ourselves. In the case below, there are so many things wrong.

First the suppossed father of a little girl who was murdered: We are to believe this man who comes to the camera with his face all relaxed and smiling, is the face of a man who just lost his child? Notice the way he prepares to speak. He is getting himself into character, like anyone who prepares for an acting bit. If you pay close attention, you will see micro expressions. These are just bits of expression that run acroos the face which reveal true emotion/thought. In this man’s case, there is smiling. This is deception.

The woman who says, “It doesn’t even seem real.” She is smiling. You mean to tell me that someone on the scene of such a horrific crime, would have it within them to smile? You have to be kidding me.

Victoria Soto — her facebook account was opened four days before the shooting. May not mean anything, then again it may.

News Reporter asks: “When is it going to get so bad that lawmakers in Washington, will have to address what has happened?” Read between the lines. She is helping to set the stage for future mass shootings, priming the American citizens —- almost telling us more will come.

Witness at 1:45: Tells how he saw a guy was brought out of the woods. Dressed in chamo pants and a dark jacket. I believe this particular witness was real.

The medical examiner: This man has got to be the biggest phony of all. Watch for yourself and tell me if you think his behavior is normal and/or professional. He just happens to have on a white coat to make it more convincing. I say this because it reminds me of the time when obama had his FAKE doctors all in lab coats promoting obamacare. Did he slip when he said, “You can control the situation depending on your photographer.”???? What about the part where he rolls his head and makes some kind of stupid sound? I can’t describe it, you have to see/hear for yourself. Does that look/sound like a professional, someone who knows what he is talking about — or does it look/sound like some kind of goofball? Looks like a fake to me.

The police officer totally ignores the question about the mother. What is the harm in saying, “I don’t know,” if you don’t know the answer? But this man for some reason totally ignores the question. It is like it caught him off guard or he felt the need to stay silent.

Officer at 6:45: “One thing that is becoming a concern, is misinformation is being posted on social media sites. It is important to know that we have discussed with federal authorities that these issues are crimes, they will be investigated, state wide and federally, and prosecution will take place when people perpretating this information are identified. So any of that information and people putting out that information in any manner can be construed as a violation of state or federal law, will be prosecuted. Will be investigated and prosecuted.” Are we to take this to mean that if you have a different opinion of what happened, you are at risk of being prosecuted? Sounds like it to me. Another way to take away free speech and free thought, if they could.

Possible second shooter that suddenly was rejected. Sound familiar? It should, the same thing was said with the Batman Movie shooting.

“Some of the eye witnesses seem to have wrong information.” Really? Someone who actually is a witness has the wrong information?

Listen to what Jesse Ventura has to say at the end. Get lost, Piers Morgan!
